OCC Hosts Cleveland Workshops on Risk Assessment and Credit Risk

WASHINGTON — The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency will host two workshops in Cleveland at the Hyatt Regency Cleveland at The Arcade, Oct. 28-29, for directors of national community banks and federal savings associations.

The Credit Risk and Risk Assessment workshops are designed exclusively for directors of institutions supervised by the OCC. The risk assessment workshop discusses the OCC’s approach to risk-based supervision, and best practices to identify, measure, monitor and control risk. Focus areas include enterprise risk management, capital risk, and cybersecurity. The credit risk workshop focuses on the roles of the board and bank management, current events, emerging industry trends, and a range of credit issues, from structuring credit to collections. Both workshops are taught by experienced OCC supervision staff.

“These courses provide a good understanding of how the OCC assesses risk, how we supervise, and expectations of risk management systems,” said Sheila VanOrnum, Risk Assessment Lead Instructor and Assistant Deputy Comptroller for the Minneapolis office.

The fee is $99 for each workshop. Participants receive a pre-workshop reading package and course materials, and assorted supervisory publications. Each workshop is limited to the first 35 registrants.

The workshops are among 35 being offered nationwide to enhance and expand the skills of national community bank and federal savings association directors. For information, including a complete list of available workshops, or to register for a workshop, visit or call (240) 485-1700.
